Coastguard Cottage is well equipped and provides spacious character self catering holiday accommodation in the picturesque seaside town of Staithes and within easy distance (one and a half hours drive) from Leeds.
The self catering holiday cottage is situated on the High Street in the very heart of the old village, and only a minute's walk from the restaurant, pub and bistros and a two minute stroll to the Harbour.
Staithes was once one of the largest fishing ports in the North East of the country and today is very popular with tourists due to its picturesque appearance.
This small North Yorkshire fishing village appears to dramatically come out of the cliffs and offers a sheltered harbour, a small sandy beach and a choice of different places to eat. Pretty cottages, interesting little shops and old inns line the cobbled high street as it meanders its way down to the sea. Attracting not only holiday makers, Staithes is popular with artists and also walkers, offering spectacular scenery, breathtaking coastal walks along the stunning North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and beautiful inland walks in the North York Moors National Park.
For those who want to explore the area there are many places of interest such as: Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Scarborough and 'heartbeat country' (Yorkshire Moors).
Whether you are looking for a relaxing weekend away, fossil hunting, a walking holiday on the North York Moors, fishing holiday or want to simply explore this beautiful area - Coastguard Cottage and Staithes provide the perfect base.
